(Common substitutes: the scattered fluff of dandelions,
Or pennies scooped from the bottoms of fountains.)
And the missing parts, a whole list of them!
Missing labels and letters and goodbyes,
Missing stitches and backbones and grandparents,
Missing blackberries from five birthdays ago,
Mushroom rings that never found me,
Sea monsters and half-forgotten friends and
People I touched and entire languages.
The final step is to search forever.
